Аnnotation: We carried out comparative analysis of the modelled vibroseis data, simulated using pseudorandom (pseudonoise) and linear frequency-modulated source sweeps in a 2D three-layer model. The main objective of the study is to demonstrate the advantages of pseudonoise signals over the conventional frequency-modulated sweeps. The modeling results are presented in the form of seismograms/correlograms, characterized by a significantly more clear image of the main hodographs in case of pseudonoise (PN) sweep as compared to the frequency-modulated (FM) sweep.
